It's a Mini Van, but I say car. To bad Ford doesn't have the foresight, or hindsight to keep building these. I guess they last too long, and are just too reliable to be manufactured by an American Car company. Very Efficient, Very Comfortable, and extremely reliable. It's the greatest and most versatile vehicle I've ever owned. Bigger than other mini-vans. It's a car. No, it's a van. Wait it's a truck. It's just a great, great vehicle. No matter what you're planning on buying, check out at least one good condition Aerostar.
Very economical, reliable and versatile.
Start building it again. Maybe Hyundai could reverse engineer it. They could offer an 8 Year/80,000 Mile Bumper to Bumper, and 15 year/150,000 Power Train Warranty and not lose a wink of sleep at night.
